IT Services for Researchers

As an SFU researcher, there are a number of information technology services you can use to support your research activities including consultation services. We can

  • Offer you our expertise regarding specific software packages.
  • Provide you with access to high-performance computing installations
  • Offer you assistance in analyzing, designing, and procuring IT software and hardware for your project (subject to staff availability).
  • Provide project management support (subject to staff availability).
  • Project management support is typically used for large IT projects, and it can be applied to any project large enough to benefit from IT best practices.
  • Help you prepare the IT section of your grant proposal.

Our primary contact is through research-support@sfu.ca. The emergency weekend and holiday support number is 604-365-6432 if you are unable to send email. This number is monitored only on weekends and holidays.
